.4% in today's trade. of course, stock has been the subject of a lot of tax law selling you be today, there appears to be a supply chain glitch, having to do with the touch screens that are used in the ipad mini. as a result, apple is likely to ship only a million ipad minis in the third quarter. it was expected to be 10 to 12 million. in the first quarter, 13 million of those ipad minis will be shipped at that time. melissa, back to you. >> mary, thank you. what does the chart tell you, guy, about apple, at this point? >> i felt like the momentum was back with it last week when it was trading in the 530 range. it wanted to push back to 550 and it falls off. i don't want to say falls off the cliff, but pushing back down towards this 500 level. so -- it pains me to say it, and i typically don't do it. here at 512, we're sort of no man's land. if you want to get back in it, hope it flushes down with a 480 and maybe on the upside, if you can get a breakout. bull right here, you're flipping a coin. >> dr. j, for a long time, apple selling off because of tax selling. at this point, as we

-- >> i don't like it in january, judge, for what i just mentioned because we will see tax laws selling. we have not seen. we have seen gains selling, people taking gains. when they start taking these loss and when all the rest of this stuff kicks in, that's when i worry these guys will make an even worse deal in panic in january. >> let's go to our guests. what is the best way to protect your money with the cliff deadline a few days away, jason pride, director of glenn me. how are you doing? how do you perceive the markets with a couple days of trade iin left? >> i kind of agree with the consternation and concern of washington and everybody there. we look at the position of one of three possibility, back to upside normalized growth, complete downside recession. and the middle of the road scenario, we begrudge this and keep doing it sloppily every once in a while, as we have been recently but manage to make our way longer term. we think that scenario is more likely and the upside has to be discounted and downside scenario we have to recognize is not an immaterial risk. positioning portf

for the issues that are bought once the law gets changed? >> nobody knows for sure. that brings up a very important point, which is historically, the treasury department has never imposed taxes on anything retroactively. so this would be a very bad precedent if they decide to apply this to existing bonds that are currently outstanding. what they ought to do is apply this, if they're going to do it, on a foregoing basis, the bonds issued after january 1st, 2013, for example. >> we're showing the picture of the mub, the etf that tracks the municipal bond market. we've seen it decline since the beginning of roughly december. i think a lot of people are concerned about this. but your point is, that perhaps if you buy this year, the treasury would not put taxes on those holdings, correct? which could be a good time to buy muni bonds. >> you're playing a gamble on whether or not the treasury is going to protect you for this year or not. personally, i'm a little bit more worried about the fact that the taxes could apply retroactively. just because of the nature of the way this would work. what's
